Dolores Gets Real About Louie, from the PJs to His Beef with Joe Gorga

RHONJ’s Dolores Catania is mentioning it all when it comes to Teresa Giudice’s husband.

By Allison Crist

Dolores Catania was put in the hot seat on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen following the April 4 episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and among the many topics she was asked about was none other than Teresa Giudice’s husband, Luis “Louie” Ruelas.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sundays at 8/7c on Bravo and stream next day on Peacock.

More specifically, how does she feel about his wearing Teresa and Joe Gorga’s late father’s pajamas? What was her reaction to his emotional argument with Joe? Dolores answered these questions, and along with the rest of her castmates, dished even more about Louie during The Real Housewives of New Jersey After Show. Read on to hear all of her honest thoughts.

Nonno’s pajamas

Louie’s confession came during the March 28 episode of RHONJ as he was trying to make peace with Joe and Melissa Gorga. In the process, he revealed that he wears Nonno’s pajamas to bed to make Teresa’s four daughters “feel safe and loving.” 

Andy Cohen asked Dolores on WWHL if she thought the admission was “sweet” or “kinda creepy,” and she responded, “I thought it was meant to be sweet.”

“But I also know Nonno never wore them,” Dolores added, echoing Teresa’s previous comments on the matter. “They were bought and he didn’t get to wear them.”
